What you mean is you can have zero PF on C. Allocate all PF to 2nd HDD.

I have always made a point to install my OS on to a single drive that is slower then my secondary drive or raid set. I currently have my OS on a 7200 RPM SATA150 drive and I have a pair of 160GB 7200 RPM SATAII drives running Raid-0 with two partitions, one 7GB partition for my paging file and the rest as a single partition that I installed all of my programs on to. I have noticed that this gives me a longer boot time when loading Windows, but all of my games and such load much faster. I am running Windows 7 Professional 32bit with 4GB of ram.
